This book describes an entirely new way of conducting hypnotherapeutic interventions - Stephen Gilligan's generative trance. The first generation of trance work, the traditional hypnosis that still holds sway in most places, considers that both the conscious mind and the unconscious mind of the client are, to put it bluntly, idiots. So trance work involves first 'knocking out' the conscious mind and then talking to the unconscious mind like a 2-year old that needs to be told how to behave. Milton Erickson created the second generation of trance work. He approached the unconscious as having creative wisdom and each person as extraordinarily unique. Thus, rather than trying to programme the unconscious with new instructions, Erickson saw trance as an experiential learning state where a person's own creative unconscious could generate healing and transformation. At the same time Erickson, for the most part, carried the same low opinion of the conscious mind. Thus, Ericksonian hypnosis looks to bypass the conscious mind with indirect suggestions and dissociation and depotentiate it with confusion techniques.

`Zeig and Munion have provided us with a lucid insight into the life and work of a 20th century giant, and it is a book ful of human warmth and humour. I congratulate you who still have the adventure of exploring Milton H Erickson's story ahead of you' - Hypnos `This new offering on Erickson does not set out to uncover new ground, but more to introduce one to Erickson (and the cases are so extraoridinary they are worth repeating anyway). It does this in a number of easy to read sections, that gives a coherence, but the structure seems to filter out some of the magic of Erickson's uncommon mind' - New Therapist `This book is an easily accessible primer for those who are new

Winner of the Arthur Shapiro Award for the 2013 Best Book on Hypnosis "The charm and value of Reidís book is that it is very personal... Reidís persona emerges as a warm, generous, and enthusiastic colleague, who is eager to share how he figured this clinical hypnosis stuff out and integrated it into his practice... [The book] serves quite well to introduce the uninitiated, and those who wish to guide them, about using the power of trance and therapeutic communication in practical ways to become more effective in helping those for whom we care. I wish I had read it in medical school." -- Laurence I. Sugarman, M.D., F.A.A.P., A.B.M.H., Annals of Behavioral Sciences and Medical Education "This is an excellent introductory book for any professional who deals with behavioralhealth issues and would like to add hypnosis to her arsenal of clinical tools."--American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis Clinical hypnosis has been proven through decades of rigorous research and practice to be an effective intervention in a wide range of mental, behavioral, and physical health issues. This highly practical text demystifies clinical hypnosis by providing step-by-step guidance for using its techniques to enhance the repertoire of practitioners in other psychotherapeutic modalities. It offers mental health providers with no formal training in hypnosis the requisite guidance and information they need to learn and confidently apply strategies to help their clients initiate constructive, health-oriented change in their lives. Chapters progress from initial assessment through the development of treatment plans and actual hypnotic techniques with clients. The author shows how to apply hypnosis to such clinical issues as anxiety, stress, somatic disorders, pain, and unwanted habits. In addition, the author shows clinicians how they can broaden their practice beyond mental or physical health parameters of treatment by applying hypnosis in areas of personal growth and wellness (motivation, athletic performance, conflict resolution). The text also covers ethical and professional issues related to clinical hypnosis, which does not require special licensure when it is integrated into a psychotherapeutic practice. Key Features: Offers clinicians who have no or little background in clinical hypnosis clear, accessible information on how to safely and effectively use basic techniques with clients Helps psychotherapists expand their practice by providing effective interventions with behavioral health issues that are also eligible for insurance reimbursement Includes sample guided scripts for specific problems as well as experiential exercises and treatment plans Provides case histories drawn from the author's clinical work and those of the "father" of clinical hypnosis, Milton Erickson Instructs therapists on the use of hypnosis for clinical and personal growth and wellness issues
